Will a young pediatric nurse be able to care for an
infant whose mother was murdered and escape the killer who has struck
The first body is found under a
trimmed Christmas tree, the second as they ring in the New Year (1947), the
third goes head long out a window. Will a young pediatric nurse determined to
make it on her own be able to care for an infant whose mother was murdered and
escape the killer who has struck again? Can she trust the stalwart village
detective with her life and her heart as he works to catch this killer before
somebody else dies?
Pediatric nurse, Katrina
Lenart, grew up strong willed and independent minded, while sharing her mother's
flair for high fashion. When the police chief gives her an orphaned baby to care
for, her maternal instincts take over and she's willing to fight anyone who
might not have the infant's best interests at heart, even the man she's growing
to love. After an attempt is made to kidnap the baby, she and the resolute
village detective team up and do some sleuthing, undercover at a cult as well as
at a fancy ball.
Detective Ian Daltry is a
widower with a child and is not interested in a new love. Hunting a killer who
stops at nothing has placed him in the position where he must protect a
beautiful young woman he's drawn to. Is there's something he's overlooked in
analyzing the case? Will he find out what that is before this ruthless murderer
kills someone he loves?
